Cost Plus Inc., voluntarily recalled Moroccan tea glasses, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), because they contain high levels of lead in the exterior coloring. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.
To this date no injuries have been reported to the company in connection with this recall.
The recalled tea glasses were sold in 7-ounce and 11.25-ounce sizes in blue, green and red. They were sold at Cost Plus/World Market stores nationwide. The CPSC News Release includes photos of the recalled items for reference.
Consumers should stop using the recalled glasses and return them to any Cost Plus/World Market store for a refund.
